Emotions are a funny thing,show me a soppy film and I will be unmoved,but the bit in ‘ Apollo 13’ when the capsule bursts through the cloud and they are home safe gets me every time I wouldn’t care if I hadn’t experienced it when it happened I know they got home but still....

Yes Tim PNE is my local team

You’ll Never Walk Alone isn’t exclusive to Liverpool. It’s 1lso the song of Borussia Dortmund in the German league and others throughout the world. Borussia adopted the song after the fans heard the Liverpool fans singing it in a Euro Final against the two teams in 1966.
Useless information.
It’s also written on a wall in one of the bars at Borussia Park in Mönchengladbach.

There was an ad on just now for Pari Mutuel, the song playing over the images was "You'll Never Walk Alone", and just singing along with it brought tears to my eyes. I'm not a big football fan and have never supported Liverpool, but there's just something about it. I listened to the original version while typing, it's not the most powerful version.
Probably because your very effeminate :lol:

The older I've become the more I consider sentimentality a curse.

Men, real men, have deep understanding of things sentimental. It is not surprising that Liverpool and several other football teams are driven on by their supporters singing “You’ll never walk alone”. It is a really powerful piece. I asked one of my students who always wore Liverpool home strip where the song came from. He answered proudly that his father told him it was pop song. He was incredulous to find it came from a musical on Broadway, the West End and other world centres.
The best National Anthems must be those of France and Wales. A few moist eyes when they are performed, particularly at RU games. If I could pronounce the Welsh words I would join in even while supporting Scotland.

I've shed a tear or two over some of the posts on here & then pulled myself together when I realised the poster wasn't trying to be funny. :)
